La Salm… I do not think I am mistaken in saying that the mention of the name of this river alone is a dream for most trout fishermen and, more generally, for fishermen attracted by running waters and their finned inhabitants. Because from Salm to salmonids, there is only one step and from salmonids to salmonids as well. This name reminds us that the Salm was once a fabulous salmon river, so much so that the town it crosses, Vielsalm, also with its evocative name, chose this fish for its coat of arms. Today, even if salmon no longer frequent the currents and pools of the Salm, the latter remains an incomparable salmonid river, very well populated with shadows and trout. It irresistibly attracts many fishermen every season, including your servant who cannot imagine not soaking a nymph or worm in it at least once a year. There is something magical about Salm, it is undeniable, and it is certainly not the fishermen who frequent the course of the “La Salmiote” fishing company – which I suggest you discover in this issue – who will contradict me.
